“The '5' includes the M&Ms! An adaptation of classic 3-ingredient peanut butter cookies. When measuring peanut butter, it helps to put a tiny bit of water in the bottom of your measuring cup first...then, the stuff should slide right out!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine peanut butter, sugar, and eggs with an electric mixer until smooth.
  2. Work in coconut flakes with your hands, being sure to combine things well.
  3. Press into TIGHT, ~1 tbsp sized disks, pressing slightly to create a nest-like indentation.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes or until just done (they might not seem that way); do not overbake. Gently re-press together any cookies that have begun to come apart.
  5. When cool, place 2-3 egg candies into each nest. A little more peanut butter can help them stick.
